Days 5 and 6
SO I woke up on day 5 feeling happy, which was great. I have been not setting my alarm so I wake up on my own and going to bed at the same time every night to try and introduce structure into my life and lower stress levels. What I ate on day 5.
B. Paleo egg cup cakes! Eggs, red, green and yellow sautéed peppers, cooked bacon. These were so good I ate 7 of them.
L. Chicken thigh, almonds.
D. I cheated, I don't know if cheating is allowed in the 30 day challenge because it is meant to be strict but I cheated. From Marks approach I see that if you try 100% you will reach your goal 80% of the time and that I can't think I am perfect so I'm not too worried. Jack Links beef jerky (2 packets 240 calories each), peanuts (the real cheat part) unspecified amount. Also ate more almonds.
I don't think I did to bad all in all, the thing about the jacklinks beef jerky is that it contains soy sauce and hydrolized corn syrup/ whatever really gross ingredients you can think of. I think it really might be worth buying a dehydrator and roasting and drying my own jerky for the lulz. At least it wont have SUGAR in it.... yuk.
Day 6. so far.
B. 2 egg cupcakes, cup of tea with dash of almond milk.
I still have this flu/cold/sinus infection and its stressing me out more than ever cos it won't go away. Its not that bad right now, but its hanging on like my body doesn't want to kill it. CMON BODY KILL THE BACTERIA. KILL THE VIRUS. YOU CAN DO IT.
The eggs I have eaten hurt my belly, but only a little bit. I just can't seem to give up eggs cos they are yummy. Maybe this is my problem? Allergic to egg?
I want to exercise but I said I wouldn't until I felt better so that is really annoying as well.
Yesterday I went to Whole Foods and worked out why it's nicknamed Whole Paycheck. I bought lots of organic food including some GRASS-FED ground beef, kale, avocados, beets and BACON. I'm pretty excited about this. I have been wolfing down Rob Wolf's The Paleolithic Solution Podcasts like it is my job and seeing how poorly the Primal blueprint fits the Paleo mold. Mind you I am only up to 2009 in the podcasts so who knows what has changed since then. Rob Wolf and that seen fairly scientific in their approach to nutrition so I am keen to listen to them. One thing I am worried about it that they say that Fish oil should be kept refrigerated or it will go rancid and will have an adverse effect of what is desired. I have never kept my fish oil refrigerated so I am worried about this. I carry it around in a pill box in my hand bag which probably gets hot when sitting in my car. uh oh. I realized that I am not getting enough vegetables ( I knew this already) so I am making an effort to cook foods this week that have vegetables in them. Like a soup or salad where veges don't taste like veges. I am trying to clean up my room too so I can feel more relaxed but it is an effort and a half. I am getting there little by little. I feel like wandering around cleaning is better than sitting at computer all day for using energy. And I am well enough to do it without feeling like dying for about an hour or so at a time.
Plans for today:
Go shopping, buy electronics.
Cook salad and maybe Paleo spaghetti for today and a few days this week.
Read more primal blueprint.
Get music set up on my smart phone.
Adios ladies and gents
Quit being paranoid, Brianna! Everyone is way too wrapped up in their own problems to be hating on you.
